Puerto Rico Votes to Become the 51st US State

The people in Puerto Rico voted Tuesday in a non-binding referandum to become the 51st US state. Nearly 80% of the island’s electorate took part in the referendum and with almost all the votes counted, almost 54% have voted to change the island’s relationship with the US from a US territory to a US state.

 The measure will require approval from the US Congress, but President Barack Obama has said he will respect the vote.

The island is currently a US territory, which uses the dollar and whose citizens travel on US passports.

But it does not return senators to the US Congress and is represented in Washington by a non-voting delegate.

Almost 80% of the island’s electorate took part in the referendum, the fourth in the past 45 years.

With almost all the votes counted, almost 54% voted to change the island’s relationship with the US.

Talk about a class act …

Usain Bolt, the Jamaica sprinter and World’s Fastest Man, managed to stop on a dime during an interview during the London Summer Olympics out of respect for the US National Anthem. Bolt, who won back to back gold medals in the 100 meters, stopped his interview with a reporter out of respect for the playing of the US National Anthem. Take a bow Usain Bolt, you deserve a gold medal for class.

The Gateway Pundit reminds us that Bolt managed to muster more respect for the United States National Anthem that a certain incumbent president (photo).

A Tale of Two Murders: Joran Van der Sloot Charged with Murder of Stephany Flores … Beth Holloway Says, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally”

Call it a tale of two crimes and the tale of how two countries handled the same crime in complete contrast manners. One country lets a sociopath loose on the rest if society to kill again, the other one rightfully charges him with murder and cages the criminal protecting society.

“It was the best of times (Peru), it was the worst of times (Aruba), it was the age of wisdom (Peru), it was the age of foolishness (Aruba), it was the epoch of belief (Peru), it was the epoch of incredulity (Aruba), it was the season of Light (Peru), it was the season of Darkness (Aruba), it was the spring of hope (Peru), it was the winter of despair (Aruba), we had everything before us (Peru), we had nothing before us (Aruba), we were all going direct to Heaven (Peru), we were all going direct the other way (Aruba) –in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good (Peru) or for evil (Aruba), in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

What Aruba could not, would not and never intended to do, Peru saw fit to accomplish at all cost. In Aruba they death with the death and disappearance of an American tourist Natalee Holloway where one of the suspects was a “little Dutch boy” of privilege. In Peru they dealt with the death of a 21 year old local from a prominent family. The common denominator … Joran Van der Sloot. Aruba has never charged Joran Van der Sloot with murder. Conversely, Peru has properly pursued Van der Sloot and charged the “Sporter” with murder. Sadly, had Aruba done their job, charged and convicted Joran Van der Sloot instead of enabling him,  Joran would never have been able to travel to Peru and kill again.

In a People magazine interview, Beth Holloway, the mother of Natalee Holloway, who has dealt with endless frustration, cronyism and corruption in Aruba said about the murder charges against Van der  Sloot by Peru authorities, “God bless the Peru authorities for handling this thoroughly and professionally.”

With no justice yet for her own daughter, Beth Holloway cautiously cheered yesterday’s decision by authorities in Peru to bring murder charges against Joran van der Sloot – long suspected in Natalee Holloway’s disappearance – for the murder last year of a young woman in Peru.

Robyn Gardner Missing in Aruba … New Witness Disputes Gary Giordano’s Claims that they Went Snorkeling Day She Disappeared

Robyn Gardner has been missing in Aruba since August 2, 2011. Her travel companion Gary Giordano’s told Aruba police that she went missing while they were snorkeling near Baby Beach.  However, according to the LE Giordano’s stories have been inconsistent. Giordano is presently being held in an Aruba jail as a suspect in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner.

According to a new witness who has come forward, they dispute the story that Gary Giordano has told regarding the fact that the two went snorkeling. The witness says that he was fishing the day that Giordano claims that he and Gardner were snorkeling. He states that the two walked on the beach, but never went into the water.

The witness says he was fishing on a beach on that day and he saw the two take a walk along the reef around 4 p.m., but they never went in the water.

A short time later, the couple drove away and he never saw either of them again, the witness says.

“If this witness ends up being accurate and correct as to locations of both Mr. Giordano and Ms. Gardner, it’s yet another piece of evidence that’s inconsistent with his story,” said ABC News consultant Brad Garrett, a former FBI agent.

Snake on a Plane: Passenger Steals $238,000 By Crawling Through Airplane Bathroom

Its a cross between “Snakes on a Plane, ”Shawshank Redemption” and “Catch me if You Can” … , but in real life.

 

A man pretending to be sick, went to the bathroom aboard a plane, tears apart the toilet, sneaks into the cargo hold, and steals  $238,000. An ambulance arrived at the tarmac to meet the man, who suddenly stated he felt better. The result, the man walked out of the airport without having to go through the normal security checks.

An ingenious thief swiped almost $250,000 on a flight in the Caribbean after sneaking into the cash-laden cargo hold via the restroom, police said Thursday.

A Brink’s security employee placed three sacks of cash containing a total $1.6 million in the hold of the Air Antilles plane before it headed from the French island of Guadeloupe to the Franco-Dutch island of Saint Martin.
